W. n. Brown, WALHALLA, S. C. w REFERRED ONLY TO CONDITION. Supervisor Says He has Not Sought to Flaco tho lUaine. Editor Keowco Courier; Please allow ino space in your pa-' per to correct a wrong Impression that seems to he abroad. It in said by some of our delegation that in a statement in your last issue I was placing the blame upon our delega tion for being out of funds with which to proceed with my work. I did not. intend to leave tho Im pression that they, or any other one individual, wore responsible for tho condition of affairs. I wish to state to the public that I havo at no Lime blamed them, and that immediately upon my bringing tho matter to their attention they all came to tho Supervisor's office, at Walhalla on tho 22d of April, and we, together with (he Treasurer, of tho county and members of tho board, discussed tho situation, and we think we have solved the prob lem of obtaining some money, with their assistance, whereby we may bo enabled to proceed with our road work. I wish it distinctly undo ' t ooo thal ( nm not critic.ising'or blaming any one man or set of men for the un? pleasant condition in which I have found our county, and hava only boen Hying to bring the facts of the silu :i".ic n before tho peoplo, and I will continue to havo published these fnets as they como to my knowlolge, for I feel that they are of vital inter est and grave concern to every citi zen of our county. Very truly yours. J. C. Shockley, County Supervisor. West Union, April 25, 1921. Three S. O. Postolllces Raised. Washington. April 23.-lt was an nounced at the Postolflee Depart ment lo-day that Smoaks. Pinewood and Frogmore, in South Carolina, had been raisod to tho Presdentlai class of postelllces because of their increased business. COOK CALLS ON LAW-MA KIO H.S. Says Peoplo Look to Them for Ad vice and Counsel. Editor Keowee Courier: The people of our vicinity would like to hear the sentiments of our Sonator and Representatives In re gard to the financial troubles of the County Supervisor. We will admit that we are not posted in regard to the laws of our country, but the peo ple naturally look to our law-mak ers for advice or some explanation on n matter like this, in fact, we do not think nnyboly else can legally arrange this matter. We know it will bo a good, long limo until our Legislature will convene again, but it seems to us that the members of the Oeneral Assembly and the Super visor should get together, hold a business meei lng and arrange mat ters. If the members of tho Honorai Assembly would promise to appro priate the amount of money needed, they could" probably borrow the money from some of the hanks until the next convening of the Assembly. We think the only trouble about this plan would bc Unding a bank that has the money to loan. Hut just any arrangement will be better than to entirely abandon the rural mall routes until next year. Yours truly, J. A. Cook. Madison, April 25, 1021. One-Tenth Population Foreign-Bo rn.
